May's Meeting

This month Cheryl, Katie and Ethan of Stockroom Supply played host. We were treated like family and Ethan put on a demonstration for us of some the jig offering available at Stockroom Supply.

  • The Little Ripper
  • The Flatmaster
  • The Round Ripper
  • The Sanding Mop
  • The Clear Vue Cyclone
Ethan also showed off the new showroom of Rikon tools.

A great night that brought out some new faces and some old ones (nice to see you back out and about Heather).

Peter H. showed off a vase he turned from a 3 week old apple tree root... very cool! Peter tried a new technique to use his power carver to form the legs and they look great.

Darryl brought in a couple wooden planes he made to show how he adjusted one them to have a lower handle to lower the center of gravity and create a more comfortable tool.

Great night and looking forward to the evnet fast approaching... The Wood Shed's 25th Anniversary Event on Saturday June 13th from 8:00am - 2:00pm where several members have already stepped up and we will be demonstrating all day at the event.

Still looking for a couple more interested in taking a jointer class at McQueen's Custom Cuts, $25.00 per person for a 3 hour class. Please email Kevin if you are interested biff_kpv@yahoo.ca
